Chantecaille Luminous Lip Gloss in Fig - Product Review and Swatch

My Space NK gift bag is the gift that just keeps giving. I'm slowing working my way through all the fabulous products inside and think I'm going to have to start a series called "Rapid Reviews" just so I can get through them as I wouldn't want you guys missing out on a thing!

Chantecaille Luminous Gloss in Fig available here

The Hype
Apparantly, "innovative shiny polymers created a fluid 3-d like glass effect for volume" and "water binding molecules hydrate and smoothe lips". It's also paraben free.

The Verdict
Here we have Chantecaille Luminous Gloss in Fig, a dark berry red shade with brown tones. Offering up to 6 hours wear, it does actually stay put really well and the gloss is thick without being sticky. Looking much darker in the tube, it comes out more of a red. With a flat doe foot applicator which makes application easy peasy, the most impressive thing about this gloss is the shine factor. Creating a 3D glassy shine, this really made me think of jam for some reason! The colour payoff isn't as rich as you'd think but adds to the glaze effect. Also, it smells divine! You know that sweet almost Christmassy/Yankee Candle smell you get with some products? It smells like that!

Daylight Swatch

Studio Swatch

A glossy gloss without the sticky mess. At £27 for the full sized tube, it's not cheap but the difference between this and drugstore brands is clear to see. There are 7 different shades in the collection and they all look gorgeous and very wearable. In particular, I'd love to try Passionfruit, Lychee and Framboise. Christmas is coming...
